    No worries, someone sent me a pm informing me that my post might be unclear. So just to be sure the only legal ways of doing business are:

    - They actually deposited the full $1mil and have a fully legal foreign owned business in Indonesia.

    And no matter what you do, always consult with a professional, it is surprising how many people fall in the "don't think, just do" category though .

          However, the government provides ease of services and / or permits to PMA as a legal entity established under Indonesian law and domiciled in Indonesia to obtain land title (see Article 21 of the UUPM at
